Covergirl Clean Matte 560 Classic Tan Liquid Makeup - Sweet
I'm just realizing I never told the PR Company what shade to send me. LOL So I want to give a BIG shout-out to the person that picked this shade for me. Look at my hand (click on the picture of my hand below to make it larger)! Is that a close match or what!?! Perfect! I haven't tried a Covergirl foundation in YEARS! The last Covergirl products I purchased, were from their Star Wars Collection (2015). Remember my Princess Leia costume? Well this liquid foundation, surprisingly worked well for me! If you click on my picture below (to make it larger), you'll see that this foundation blended really well with my skin. Despite it being formulated for oily skin types, my skin never felt dry. As a matter of fact, my skin had a little glow to it. I wore this all day Saturday, while I was doing home chores & cleaning. It really did a great job at controlling oil. No matter how I perspired or being in & out of the New Orleans humidity, this foundation held up well. It wasn't until around 3pm that it started dissipating. I have NO CONCEALER on in the picture below! I consider this foundation to be lightweight to medium coverage. It's creamy. It's not heavy. It's very silky. You have to apply quickly, because it doesn't linger on the skin. I tried it with a beautyblender, but the beautyblender absorbed too much product. So I used my fingertips to apply the foundation instead. You know how skeptical I can be, so overall I thought this foundation was really good. It surprised me. As far as the packaging, I wish it had a pump. When you have to pour, either too much product comes out or it gets messy.
Covergirl Clean Matte 540 Medium BB Cream
Sweet (Oily Skin) Bittersweet (Other Skin Types) Not Sweet (Dry Skin)
The BB Cream has a different consistency. It's thicker. It's more powdery. It seems to give more coverage than the liquid foundation above. I have dry skin, so this showed up my imperfections (lines etc.). So I won't count that against my rating (if you have dry skin or lots of imperfections I wouldn't get this because it will show them up), so please consider your skin type & skin condition. This probably would work better on someone with Oily Skin. The coverage was pretty decent, but as you can see from my picture you will need a concealer. Just as the liquid foundation, this did a great job controlling oil. I'm use to BB Creams being a little more lightweight, so if you have oily skin and need a BB cream that gives more coverage ... this is for you.
Covergirl Clean 565 Tawny Matte Pressed Powder - Sweet
This shade of pressed powder was a little dark for me LOL, so I decided to use it as a bronzer. The formula is really good. It's lightweight. It covers well. It definitely controls any oil on your face, without making it look cake-y or powdery. I really love the packaging. You have this blue compact encased in plastic, with a working mirror and they give you a powder puff. Very sleek. Very chic.
Covergirl The Supersizer Fibers Mascara in Brown - Bittersweet
This is NEW! I tried the Super Sizer Mascara from the Star Wars Collection and thought it was ok. I feel the same way about this mascara (despite it's claims about 400% more lashes). There was some lengthening. There was some volume. But it seemed to clump my lashes together. The wand is really nice, because you can really get both your upper & lower lashes. It's just an ok mascara to me. If you look at their website, this got great reviews. But there were some that felt the way I did. I can only give my opinion.
The PR agency sent me some extra products (pictured below)! So I thought a giveaway would be nice. The shades are medium & medium/light. Very universal. If these don't match your skin tone, I still encourage you to enter. Think of others! There may be a family member, co-worker, neighbor or someone you can give these to (it would make them very happy). Another option would be to donate these products to your local women's shelter. It's a good deed, that's needed and would be appreciated. This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE. Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.
